Grandma's Rig

Description

A buddy of mine gave me his old computer in return for fixing his current one, so I decided to give it to my grandmother to replace her decade-old, Frankenstein'd-together, POS. All she does is browse the web anyways, so she didn't need anything too powerful. She loves it, except for the IO being on the side because there's kind of a wall there. :/

All I needed to buy was a new case, as the old one was a broken slim HP-thingy, a new CPU cooler, as the old one was attached to the broken slim HP-thingy, and a new PSU that didn't sound like a jet taking off.

You know the drill. Leave a comment, tell me how I did, all that jazz.

Great job! The only thing I'm surprised by is that CPU cooler costing $25...

Anyway, you're a good grandson/granddaughter!

 
 
xBlood_Monkey [Submitter] [9 Builds] 4 points 12 months ago

That's after tax, but yea, it was expensive for what it is.

Ah man, Grams is moving up in the world. :)

 
 
xBlood_Monkey [Submitter] [9 Builds] 1 point 12 months ago

Lol. I actually wanted to give her my media center PC, but she said she's fine with that one, so whatever. :p

Wait wait wait. Why doesn't Grandma have triple watercooled Titan Z's? Even then it might struggle with minesweeper

 
 
xBlood_Monkey [Submitter] [9 Builds] 1 point 3 months ago

Well, for one, neither the case nor the motherboard support three triple-slot expansion cards.

Secondly, as far as I know, SLI only supports up to 4 GPUs at once.

Thirdly, I didn't have over $9000 to drop on video cards and water cooling hardware at the time.

Excellent pimping! How's grandma?

 
 
xBlood_Monkey [Submitter] [9 Builds] 1 point 26 days ago

I'm not sure.. I haven't seen her in a while, actually..

 
 
ImYourChrist 1 point 26 days ago

Hope she's all good! I just see you've got 9 builds as soon as I got more free time I will check 'em. Cheers
